Big Pit National Coal Museum

Blaenavon Pwll Mawr, or the Big Pit National Coal Museum, is one of the few places where you can experience life as a coal miner. Once a working colliery, this museum offers fascinating guided tours across the massive expanse of the mine and chronicles the workings as witnessed here. In the colliery buildings, one can find numerous interesting exhibitions that offer theoretical insight into its history. The on-site gift shop and cafeteria are worthy pit stops, offering delectable snacks and unmissable souvenirs.

St Donats Castle

Nestled next to the Bristol Channel, the St Donats Castle is a domineering landmark. This medieval castle has made the otherwise quaint Saint Donats village quite popular. Built in the 12th Century, the ownership of this castle has passed through several hands, but originally it belonged to the de Hawey family. The castle is open to visitors only once in a year and the opulent decor, huge dungeons and other antique stuff is certainly worth the wait. Ghost stories and tales about witches and sightings of executed pirates lend a mystic feel to this castle. Currently, it is home to the St Donat's Arts Centre and Atlantic College. For interesting insights, tales of the past and a vivid description of St Donats Castle, tourists can avail guided tours that are generally conducted in the month of August.

Cardiff Castle

This legendary 11th-century castle sits in the heart of Cardiff, engulfed by the blissful meadows of Bute Park. Interspersed with elements of Gothic revival and Victorian architecture, this impressive Welsh landmark is steeped in nearly 2000 years of history. Exuding immense gravitas still, the Cardiff Castle was initially a Norman-era motte-and-bailey castle that transformed into a stone-built entity in the 12th Century, most likely at the behest of the 1st Earl of Gloucester. Its time-honored walls have been testament to years of conflict, but conceal within grandiose alterations that the third Marquess of Bute brought about, with help from renowned architect William Burges.
